Factors causing all Euro bank stocks to drop are unrelated to NBG
i.e., fear of UK housing bubble, upcoming Spanish GDP report and the unemployment rate for the entire Euro-zone. Nonetheless, the whole sector retreats awaiting this week’s data. IMO each bank will eventually be judged on its own merits.
I've been wondering, does anyone know whether Yahoo sells sentiment information from these boards? My guess is yes, an informal poll of sentiment would be valuable to some. I wonder how many visitors come to these boards on average, and what sort of effect it can have.
Just saw your message in my Yahoo mail. You're probably right. IMO it would be difficult to quantify the effect of our sentiment though as there are so many other factors that cause a stock to rise and fall. However, I bet Yahoo does have a bigger effect than we realize. I think some mutual fund/institutional execs read messages and post. Anyway, we are giving each other info and providing each other moral support for our investment decisions. Let me know if you get this reply as Yahoo is acting up.
